Thanksgiving Recipes

 
 

There are so many incredible recipes for Thanksgiving out there, that selecting the sides you want is often a difficult task. You need to find the perfect balance between traditional options that everyone loves and expects and new options that will delight your guests. Here is a delicious side dish recipe for sweet potatoes that will perfectly accent your turkey with a hint of sweet. Also, it can easily be made in candied slices or in a casserole style mash. Whichever your preference is, this sweet potato dish is an absolute must at Thanksgiving!

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/4 cup orange juice

Directions:
Sliced

  1. Cut up skinned sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch slices.
  2. Boil cut-up sweet potatoes until tender.
  3. In a large frying pan, melt the butter and brown sugar together (just bubbling). Add the orange juice and stir until smooth. Add the drained sweet potatoes and cook slowly, turning occasionally until the sweet potatoes are caramelized. About 20 minutes. If syrup is too thin, add a bit more brown sugar.

Mashed

  1. Bake sweet potatoes whole at 350° F until tender.
  2. Remove skins and mash into a 9 inch x 13 inch glass pan. Mix in orange juice thoroughly.
  3. Cut butter into cubes and disperse evenly throughout the pan. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over the top. Bake in the oven again until brown sugar melts (about 10 minutes). Remove and carefully mix contents of pan with a fork. Replace and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  4. If desired, garnish top with marshmallows and broil until lightly browned and puffy.

Alternative Thanksgiving Dishes

Times are changing and so are our diets! Many people have switched entirely to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, and suddenly find this traditional American holiday difficult to enjoy with family and friends who have not. Here is a delicious option from Compassionate Cooks for your veg loved ones, or even use it as a hearty side dish.

Harvest Stuffed Acorn Squash

Ingredients:

  • 4 acorn squash, halved lengthwise; seeds and membrane removed
  • 1 cup organic brown rice
  • 1/2 cup wild rice
  • 4 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon each ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Cook both varieties of rice together in broth or water with 1/4 teaspoon of salt (omit salt if broth is already salted).
  3. Meanwhile, place squash halves, cut side down, into a large shallow baking dish or cookie sheet (you may need two). Bake for 30 minutes.
  4. In a skillet, sauté onion in olive oil until it becomes transparent. Add the celery and sauté a couple of minutes. Remove from heat. Using a large mixing bowl, blend this mixture together with the cooked rice, cranberries, nuts, apricots, and remaining seasonings.
  5. When done, remove the partially baked squash from the oven. Spoon out some of the cooked squash and mix it with the rest of the ingredients. Be sure to scrape only a little; you want to leave squash in the shells, too.
  6. Press the rice mixture into each squash cavity, mounding rice as much as possible. (Depending on how large the squash are, you may end up with some leftover rice mixture, which makes a great side dish by itself.)
  7. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes or until squash flesh is thoroughly tender.

 
 

Thanksgiving Preparations

 
 

Getting ready for a big meal like Thanksgiving requires plenty of planning and preparation. Here are some things you'll want to keep in mind dotting the i's and crossing the t's for your Thanksgiving Celebration.

  1. Number of guests: This is the biggest party influencer for an event planned entirely around food. Having a realistic idea of how many mouths you will be feeding will help you figure out how much food needs to be prepared and what size turkey you need.
  2. Turkey Thawing Time: Nothing is a bigger disaster than a frozen bird on Thanksgiving Day! Be sure to plan ahead to make sure your turkey is kept chill—but not frozen.
  3. Entertainment: Guests will likely be of all ages, children and adults, so having activities for the children and entertainment for the adults is just as important as cooking a great meal.
  4. Space: It may sound silly, but making sure everyone has a reasonable space to sit is important for the buffet-style meal. Hosting a Thanksgiving buffet is a great solution to being shy on dining space, but adequate seating space is just as important. Make sure you have a chair or sofa space for each of your guests.

Thanksgiving Open House

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather with family and close friends, and share in the joy of each other. It may be hard to pick just the few people who can fit comfortable in your home at once to enjoy the day. Also, families are always organic creations with many extending and intertwining branches. It is not uncommon to receive multiple invitations for Thanksgiving and find yourself, as a guest, in a precarious balancing act of time.

A great way to simplify your life a little bit this Thanksgiving is by hosting a casual Thanksgiving Open House. Offer light hors d'oeuvres and refreshments to go around, and open your home to everyone to stop in at their convenience. You will have plenty of time to connect personally with your guests and engage in stimulating conversation on a much smaller level than possible in large groups. It will be easier on your feet, easier on your budget, and easier on your stress level!

Thankful Notes

 
 

Our Thanksgiving paper can be used for a wide variety of options. One obvious use of our various designs are as paper invitations. They can be handed out like flyers or mailed in envelopes, and they are super easy to print on your home inkjet or laser printer. Because stationery paper is so much less expensive than cardstock invitations, you may find it within your budget to get multiple designs without breaking a sweat. Use the additional paper to boast your menu, offer directions, or include any note in your invitation.

However, one beautiful idea that many are enjoying on Thanksgiving is to use Thanksgiving Paper Stationery to share the things for which you are thankful. Offer each guest a sheet of gorgeously decorated paper and a pen to write down the things for which they are thankful. It can be an anonymous note penned and read aloud, a private note to be shared only if desired, or even a note to be exchanged amongst family and friends.

This simple exercise helps children process the luxuries they have in life, and it helps teach them appreciation for these things that they have. In the spirit of sharing, having children each read their notes can be a heartwarming event that all would benefit from.

Thanksgiving: Unique American Holiday

The unique part about Thanksgiving comes in the nature of this national holiday. It has its roots in America's foundation as a mainly farming-based society. We celebrated Thanksgiving first because of our thankfulness over bountiful harvests that allowed us to survive and thrive in the New World. Though many incorporate their own religion into this holiday, it is not by any means a religious holiday like Easter or Yom Kippur. Further, Thanksgiving holds a theme that all people around the world can relate to—being thankful for what you do have. The concepts of gratitude and appreciation transcend boundaries of gender, class, race, and nationality.

At ImpressInPrint.com, we are thankful for each other, our loved ones, and also you as a valued customer. We hope that each year you will help us spread warmth and understanding, even in the unlikeliest of places.

Boiling over with green, goopy fun, our invitations come in a variety of themes and styles intended to thrill.
